    China Bans All Canadian Meat Products

    Also their ban on Canadian Canola?

    Remember how this whole pandemic is absolutely their fault. Causing it, then delaying the world response.

    They still have innocent Canadians locked up just because.

    Fuck China and anybody who says otherwise.

    Not much if we're talking wet markets and not exotic wildlife animal markets. Here's a good article explaining the difference and why the Chinese gov't has to shut one down and invest in the other.


    SHANGHAI —

    As some media outlets cover the coronavirus, journalists are mixing up wet markets and wildlife markets. But most wet markets are not wildlife markets, and confusing the two is dangerous.

    “Wet” markets are what China calls its fresh food markets, the kind you see all over the developing world and in many parts of Europe, where small stalls sell fresh vegetables and butchers sell meat, primarily pork. They are the daily market for tens of millions of Chinese who prefer to talk to the people who sell them produce, meat, seafood and tofu, and in small cities, are often the only outlet for small-scale farmers who can’t meet the supplier requirements for supermarkets. (Still, it’s important to differentiate: Most wet markets, especially in big cities, may look like farmers markets but are buying from the same wholesale suppliers as supermarkets.)

    But if it was caused by these "wet markets" then we'd better start getting ready for the next wave of viruses because there's no way in hell the Chinese gov't can shut them down and still feet their population.

    Unfortunately once again the mainstream media has locked onto an incorrect term and run with it.
